Creative English

 
Funded By...

The Creative English classes are new to Oasis thanks to  training given by Faithaction.  These classes aim to make learning English fun. Learners are from the Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Afghan and Somali communities  who have very basic to little spoken English.  Some have been in the country for many years but have never had the opportunity to learn English.

 

Classes begin to give a grounding in English and help to build confidence in the learners through learning through drama, dialogues and other fun activities. These classes are best suited to those who have tried in the past to learn English but have found traditional methods of learning not suited to their learning style. The 12 week course serves as a good introduction to learning.

 

Each class lasts 10 weeks and learners are then signposted onto further English classes through different providers in Luton or to other classes run at The Oasis Centre.

 

FREE (subject to eligibility) when registered before December 2018 but £10 deposit required which will be returned on completion of 10 classes along with certificate

 

These classes have no facilities for looking after children during the classes.

Ladies Wednesday Creative English

 
 
Funded By...
 

The Wednesday Creative English classes have beginners in the morning session and more able learners in the afternoon sessions, again, thanks to  training & funding given by Faithaction.  These classes aim to make learning English fun. Learners are from the Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Afghan and Somali communities  who want to improve their English.  Some have been in the country for many years but have never had the opportunity to learn English.

 

Classes follow on from the Monday class and build confidence in the learners through the use of drama, dialogues and other creative activities.  Learners are encouraged to use the English they are learning in their everyday situations.  The course covers English essential for daily life and has been proved to improve confidence in learners enabling them to learn more effectively.

 

The first 12 weeks of a Creative English course are FREE if registered before December 2018 (subject to eligibility) with a £10 deposit required which will be returned on completion of 10 classes along with certificate. After that classes are charged at £2 per session.

 

These classes have no facilities for looking after children during the classes.

 
 

Ladies Drop In Sessions

The Tuesday and Thursday Drop In Sessions are open to ladies with or without young children. They give the opportunity to come and meet with friends and to make new friends in a warm friendly home-like environment. Some come to do just that but there is also the opportunity to receive help and support in some of life's more difficult situations.

 

  • Filling in forms

  • Help in reading official letters

  • Help and support in phoning local offices for housing, benefits etc

  • A computer is available to enable bidding on housing, applying for benefits etc

  • Help to connect to any of Luton's many support, help and information services

  • Help settling into the town

 

Some come because they want their young children to begin to interact in English before going to nursery or because they, themselves, see the need to improve and grow in their confidence in using English.

 

While this is happening, any pre-school children can play or take part in craft activities in our supervised children's room. However, mum or carer must stay on the premises at all times.

 

Cost per lady £1

 
 
 

Other Groups run as the need arises.  

 

These include-

  • Help with Life in the UK test

  • Help with driving theory tests

  • Parenting Courses

For the above an appropriate knowledge of English is required

Primary Homework Club

 
 

Children like to do well in their homework and sometimes it's hard for parents to give them the help and encouragment they need. The homework club aims to do just that in a quiet and disciplined environment.

 

Children from year R to year 6 can find some of the help and resources they need. The club is run by trained teachers with their helpers but they are NOT tutors. They will not do the homework but will encourage and facilitate the children to do their best.

 

There are internet and printing facilities along with a variety of reference books available to use on site.

 

Because we want the children to do their best, there are a limited number of places available so please call in or phone before bringing your children.

 

Cost £2  per child  (+ 20p per page printed)

 

High School Boys Club

 
 

For boys in year 7 to 11.  A safe place to come and meet new friends and chill out. The boys spend about an hour in a quiet and disciplined environment doing their homework, course work or revision.  Internet and a limited number of reference books are available but our helpers are not trained teachers, just men wanting to help them do their best in their studies.

 

Homework time is followed by a chance to chat with their friends or challenge them to a game of Uno, pool or carram!

 

Snacks are provided too!

 

To come along to this group you MUST contact us first as numbers are very limited.

 

Cost £2 per child (+ 20p per page printed)

 

High School Girls Club

 
 

A group for girls in year 7 to 11 who meet for homework and fun.  Like the boys' group they start with a quiet time for homework, course work or study. Internet and limited reference books are available. Our helpers are available to assist in homework but their main task is encouraging and facilitating the girls to do their best.

 

After homework is finished, there is time for fun activities including cooking, gardening, games etc.

 

Numbers are very limited so you must contact us if you would like to come to this group.

 

Cost £2 (+ 20p per page printed)
